Christmas Chalk Walk

Our stake started a new tradition this year. They had a Christmas Chalk Walk. 
They advertised for artists of all levels, so we jumped in with both feet. 
I had a basic idea in mind, and Summer drew it out for me. 
She really is good with perportions, where I sorely lack skill. 
Me and the kids spent a few hours there Thurs. and Fri. nights. We were chalk covered and colorful. 
Saturday after basketball, we even had Jason join us for the finishing touches. 
I was pretty proud of our final piece. We knew we wouldn't win, but it was fun to try. 
Each stall had info on each artist. We were very honest:
Here are a few of my favorites:

Obviously one of the professionals!
This one was amazing!  It was the three men looking towards Bethlehem. It was done really well, but the shadows ruined the picture. Sorry. 
The stake provided all the chalk, snacks and meals for the artists, plus there was a choir singing Fri. and Sat. nights, fresh scones, and hot chocolate. It was a huge success. Can't wait till next year!
